FAQ

I photograph a wide range of pets, including but not limited to dogs, cats, horses, and even more unique pets like chickens. My goal is to capture the special bond between pets and their families, regardless of the pet’s species.

My photography aligns with the principles of lifestyle photography. I focus on capturing real-life moments and the beauty of everyday interactions between you and your pets. While I often use natural light in settings meaningful to you, such as your home or a favorite outdoor spot, I also have the ability to create images that give the impression of a studio setting, if that’s your preference.

The safety of my pet clients is always my number one priority. Here’s how I ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:

  1. Leash Policy: Dogs will only be off-leash if they have a 100% recall ability in the particular setting. In more unpredictable or urban environments, I always recommend keeping dogs on a leash for their safety.

  2. Using Long Leads for Action Shots: For dynamic, action-filled shots, we can use a long lead. This allows your dog some freedom while ensuring their safety and gives us the opportunity to capture those energetic moments safely.

  3. Leash Removal in Post-Processing: Any leashes in the photos can be removed in Photoshop for the final images you order. This technique allows us to maintain safety during the shoot while still achieving a natural, off-leash look in the photos.

I absolutely love having people in the photos with their pets! Including immediate family members in the session not only tells a beautiful story but also adds so much fun and warmth to the photoshoot. Here’s how we make it happen:

  1. Inclusive Sessions: All immediate family members are welcome to be part of the session. This creates a wonderful opportunity to capture the unique dynamics between your pet and each family member.

  2. Pre-Session Planning: During the pre-planning phase, we’ll discuss who exactly will be in the photos, your vision, and the overall vibe you’re looking for. This helps me tailor the session to perfectly suit your family’s personality and style.

  3. Understanding Personalities and Activities: I’ll gather detailed information about the personalities and favorite activities of everyone involved. This insight is crucial for creating a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere during the session.

  4. Capturing Your Story: My goal is to capture the essence of your relationship with your pet and each other. Whether it’s through playful interactions, tender moments, or shared activities, these photos will reflect the unique bond you share.

  5. Customized Experience: Knowing what’s important to you and any specific details or preferences you have allows me to create a truly personalized and memorable experience. Every family is unique, and your photos should reflect that.

  6. Fun and Interaction: Expect the session to be interactive and enjoyable. I strive to create a fun environment where you can naturally interact with your pet, resulting in authentic and beautiful photographs.

By the end of our session, we’ll have captured not just pictures, but memories filled with emotion and connection. It’s all about celebrating the joy and love that pets bring into our lives and the special place they hold in your family.

It’s very helpful to have an idea of what products you might be interested in before the session, but you don’t need to make any final decisions until after you’ve seen your final images. Here’s how this benefits the photography process:

  1. Pre-Session Considerations: Knowing in advance what types of products you’re considering (like wall art, albums, or prints) can guide the session’s focus. For instance, if you’re thinking about a large wall display, I’ll look for images that work well in a larger format.

  2. Flexible Decision Making: You have complete flexibility to choose your products after seeing the final images. This allows you to select products that best showcase your favorite photos from the session.

  3. Viewing Appointment: After your session, we’ll arrange a time for you to view the final images. During this viewing, you can decide which products you’d like to order based on the images you love the most.

  4. Tailored to Your Preferences: This approach ensures that the products you choose perfectly match your preferences and the style of images we captured during the session.

  5. Guidance and Recommendations: I’m here to offer guidance and recommendations on products that will best suit your needs and complement the images. Whether it’s choosing the right size for a wall piece or selecting the best layout for an album, I’ll help you make choices that you’ll be delighted with.

Remember, the session is about capturing beautiful moments, and choosing how to display them is an important, but not immediate, part of the process. You’ll have plenty of time to decide on the perfect way to showcase these memories in your home.
